At 1st I 4t the gems were red cos my warning level is 12. LOL!!
i have found 98% of the time the stereotypes ARE TRUE (if the stereotypes werent true - then they would be imediately be dismissed by the general public)- people slate me on this forum for stereotyping - i only state my observations as they are - and people have a problem with that- yet if it's done in a "comedic" fashion then it's completely OK .
I'm thinking for example Apu in the simpson's the katherine tate sketches/ the vicky polard skethes where she stereotypes chav's . . . and take for example "goodness gracious me" ., "the kumars at 42" . . .
. . .there is alot of stereotyping on "East is East". . .and stereotypes of class- such as "Laurie and Fry"
Yet, I stated on one forum that ethnic minorities underperform academically in the UK - u may have heard a piece about it on the news today - and some people deem this as a racist statement - when all i'm doing is stating what the reports have said.
